Unlimited Running isn't really a "critical" feature imo. Hell this may actually improve the feel of the game (at least in MP)

Krysis326d ago

It's not critical in the sense that it must be in the game, but it's omission is a multi-player game changer and should make things far more tactical.

'meh it's doesn't bother me one way or other. CoD players will just adapt, then they will find something else to cry about.

I don't think is a big deal really.

I feel like some of the others didn't have unlimited sprint

Asuka326d ago

yeah you're right. most of the older titles did not have unlimited sprint, but did offer a perk to increase sprint duration or grant unlimited sprint. Don't know why this is surprising some people tbh

Relientk77326d ago

Yeah, that's what I thought

Krysis326d ago

Because it's COD and it has been in the game for over a decade.

Unlimited sprint has not been in the game for over a decade. The sprint feature itself has been in the series since CoD1: United Offensive, the 'sequel' to CoD 1. The first game in the series to have a way to sprint forever was MW2, which was only available via the Pro version of a perk. The first game to have a way to extend the sprint duration was CoD4, with the Extreme Conditioning perk.

The vast majority of CoD games have not had unlimited sprint, so I'm not sure why people are freaking out over its omission in this game.

What? There's s unlimited sprint? No wonder the new titles suck

bunt-custardly326d ago

I wonder if enemy AI grenade spamming will return in the SP. Gotta love that on Veteran.


Vegamyster326d ago

I remember World at War was terrible for that, i don't think i bothered finishing it on Vet for that reason.

mafiahajeri326d ago

I did man it was not fun :)

Vegamyster326d ago

Ouch haha. I completed CoD 4 on Vet which was bad enough, wasn't willing to deal with the same respawning 1-2 shot aimbot enemies who all learned to toss 2 or 3 nades at a time in WaW, drove me crazy lol.

The grenade landing sound drowned out every other noise much like how the screen filled with grenade indicators!

The only thing worse was the clown car A.I that wouldn't stop until you moved past an imaginary line

I remember struggling for weeks just to get half way through veteran campaign. I made the mistake of also getting the death cards at the same time. BIG MISTAKE. The game hard crashed and wiped my saved. I said F THAT and never went back... I should finish the fight though.

KillZallthebeast326d ago

Lol I finished it, but it was the last time I ever played a COD game on veteran.

Oh my god, that World at War Veteran difficulty.

WilliamSheridan326d ago

I hated unlimited sprint. It shouldn't be there. It as always a tactical choice of when to sprint. Also the gameplay becomes too twitchy...

Kombatologist326d ago

Agreed. Search & Destroy has been my favorite game type since MW1, but it's virtually unplayable now because of how fast the game has become. Unlimited run certainly didn't help. I hope the speed of CoD:WW2 is more on par with MW1 again.
